Definitely feeding.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #15790
A very small juvenile individual in situ on its food hydroid.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #11762
This is Bornella anguilla. This specimen seems to have a bit of the greenish tint that was present in all but one of the original specimens described from the Marshall Islands. Judging from the numerous photos on the web from widely scattered locations, specimens from most areas do not have this greenish color.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #11834
This is Bornella anguilla, now known to be distributed widely across the Indo-West Pacific from South and East Africa to the Hawaiian Islands. It is the only nudibranch I know that swims like an eel or blenny.

Yes. Great I had this as a first record from Mauritius, so nice to see it again!
